Raven Carr Transforms Education into Action at Interfaith Ministries of Denton

Raven CarrRaven Carr is a VISTA member serving at Interfaith Ministries of Denton, Inc. as the Volunteer Coordinator. Interfaith’s mission is to provide emergency basic needs assistance to the people of Northern Denton County with the goal of helping those people to become self-sufficient. For 10-weeks Raven took a course on Volunteer Mobilization through the VISTA Campus. During the course she gained knowledge about building a volunteer program, recruiting and retaining volunteers. An important factor she learned was sustainability. Raven developed tools and techniques for class that she plans to use to build a stronger volunteer program. For example, through the course Raven developed a screening and interview protocol for an assignment that can be used to screen and interview volunteers for Interfaith. Raven has successfully recruited 13 new volunteers for Interfaith Ministries since beginning her service with many more to come.
